Collaborative Post | There’s no denying we’re living in a world of fast fashion and fleeting trends, which can seem utterly exhausting sometimes if you’re trying to sort out your wardrobe! That’s why a timeless wardrobe is a great option for transcending seasonal fads and ensuring you always look and feel your best, no matter the year or occasion.
This article will explore the principles and strategies for building a timeless wardrobe that reflects your personal style while promoting a more sustainable approach to fashion.
The Importance of a timeless wardrobe
There are a few different reasons why building yourself a timeless wardrobe comes highly recommended. One of the key advantages is, of course, a strong commitment to sustainability. Since fast fashion accelerates environmental degradation through excessive production and harmful disposal of garments that have “gone out of style,” building a capsule wardrobe instead encourages the buying of eco-friendly materials and sourcing clothes that have been produced through responsible manufacturing.
Another key benefit of a timeless wardrobe is longevity. By investing in fewer (but higher quality items) consumers can build a wardrobe of clothes that stand the test of time, and more importantly, need replacing less often.
Deciding exactly what to put into your timeless wardrobe can be tricky. So we’ve created a quick list of what we think are the biggest essentials for a capsule closet:
● Tailored blazer
● Classic white tee
● Well-fitting jeans
● Little black dress
● Timeless trench coat
● White trainers
● Black boot
● All-round dress
● Button-up shirt
● Stripy jumper
Elevate your style with timeless accessories
As well as deciding on some timeless pieces of clothing, it’s also important to choose accessories that will also stand the test of time. Pieces like a well-crafted leather handbag, a versatile silk scarf, and a pre-owned classic watch that you can’t go wrong with, are all a great start.
The art of mixing and matching
Once you have all the pieces safely in your timeless wardrobe, the final step is finding out just how they work together. By keeping the items fairly neutral, you can create a number of different outfit combinations. If you’re feeling really brave, mixing and matching any patterns in your new wardrobe can be successful if you stick with complimentary colour schemes while you do it.
You can also try your hand at mixing and matching by reviving and reinventing the clothes you already own. Finally remove that old red wine stain from your white jumper, or get the sewing kit out to make those expensive leggings as good as they once were!
Building a capsule wardrobe isn’t just great for sustainability, it’s also a great fashion hack to make choosing what to wear in the morning a whole lot easier. Once you’ve gone timeless, you won’t go back!
